today. the northeast crippled by sandy. 8 million without power, the storm moving very slowly toward canada. the weather channel's hurricane expert brian norcross joins me now. tell us the latest and give us feel for where it is going, where it's been and how unusual this storm has been. >> all right. andrea, this storm is still spinning around, centered here in pennsylvania now. none of them is of consequence. it's all about the weather going on. along the east coast in the new york metropolitan area a few showers around. still a good breeze coming off the ocean, though, and that will slow down some of the power restorations, because some of those winds are gusting 30 miles an hour or more. that's a problem. heavy rains around washington and also around washington, the water from the chesapeake bay is being pushed down now and is still causing some flooding although the general flooding picture is much, much mo improved from yesterday. up into maine there are severe thunderstorms with winds over 50 miles an hour up that way, so more power may go out with those storms and then over i
